First on CNN: Pro-Democratic group goes up with big buy in key Senate contest

(CNN) - The leading outside group supporting Democrats in this year's battle for control of the Senate says it's putting big bucks behind a new ad that attacks the GOP challenger in North Carolina, home to one of the most crucial races.

CNN has learned that the Senate Majority PAC will launch a new television commercial Thursday that slams North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis over state education cuts. He's the Republican Senate nominee who's challenging first term Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan. If the GOP can flip the seat in North Carolina and five others, without losing any ground, they will win control of the Senate in November's midterm elections.

Obama set to rake in millions, despite criticism of fundraising during tumult

Seattle (CNN) – Republicans and some political pundits have taken sharp aim at President Barack Obama for maintaining his fundraising schedule amid a period of global unrest.

Not among those complaining? Democrats who stand to benefit from the millions of dollars in campaign cash Obama will help pull in this week during a three-day West Coast swing, bringing him into the homes of entertainment and real estate bigwigs in Seattle, the Silicon Valley and Los Angeles.

Democrats record anti-GOP ad at GOP victory celebration

Updated 2:17 p.m. ET, 5/9/2014

(CNN) - A leading pro-Democratic outside group is up with a new television commercial that attacks the GOP's new Senate nominee in North Carolina.

But the most interesting part of the ad by Senate Majority PAC is that the woman narrating the spot infiltrated Tuesday's victory celebration for the candidate, North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis.
